Microsoft helps Shakey’s scale up pizza delivery

Posted on March 23, 2017

SHAKEY’S PIZZA chain has partnered with tech giant Microsoft to streamline business operations and facilitate its growing online delivery system.

The pizza company was prompted to scale up its resources after officials realized that its current system was unable to support demand during peak times, Mauricio D. Franco, Jr., chief information officer of Shakey’s Philippines, said.

Since there was an emphasis on its delivery service -- which make up 30% to 35% of the business -- “we came to a realization that our system cannot support the demand during peak times,” Mr. Franco said during the project’s press launch on Tuesday in Bonifacio Global City.

Under the partnership, Microsoft Dynamics AX, which will run on Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure, will be used to optimize the store’s accounting, procurement, inventory, and store operations through analytics and data management.

As a result, Shakey’s hopes to enjoy seamless integration in every customer interaction.

The company serves an average of 100 guests in less than 200 stores nationwide. Besides in-house guests, the company also takes orders made online and through voicemail which comprise 15% and 85% of total deliveries, respectively.

Delivery orders hit peaks during special days like Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, with transactions reaching seven times more those incurred during regular days.

“We have to scale up our resources, that is why we’re using Microsoft Azure as our infrastructure to support our delivery system,” said Mr. Franco.

Meanwhile, as the food company ventures into the use of technology to streamline operations, Mr. Franco also discussed the planned use of bitcoins as a mode of payment when ordering from Shakey’s.

“We see the application of Bitcoin has been successful in the international market, we see it going viral in the global market, so we are preparing for this because we know that this is something our guests would like,” Mr. Franco said.

Bitcoin is an online currency recognized globally for conducting payments through the Internet.

“We are actually testing it with a certain provider... we can see this happening within the next three months,” he added.

The year 2017 will also see the opening of 20 new Shakey’s locations in the country, half of which will be in Metro Manila with the other half distributed throughout Visayas and Mindanao.

“We closed last year with 184, this year we’re planning on at least 20 additional stores. We opened already five,” Shakey’s general manager Jorge Q. Concepcion said.

Investments in each store location would vary, depending on its size and whether the branch would be placed inside a mall or establish its own building.

“Typically more or less P10 million for a store located inside a mall... if we decide to build from the ground up that would take around P20 to P30 million,” Mr. Concepcion said.
Shakey’s Pizza Delivers 40% Net Income Growth in 2016

...earnings report

SPAVI recurring profit grows 15% at end-Sept.

SHAKEY’S PIZZA Asia Ventures, Inc. (SPAVI) delivered a 15% growth in its recurring profit for the first nine months of 2017, following a strong revenue base supported by its store network expansion.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the listed full-service restaurant operator said its recurring net income stood at P519 million in the January to September period. The increase was a result of the 18% climb in revenues during the period to P5 billion, against the P4.2 billion reported in the same period a year ago.

Revenues for the third quarter alone picked up 11% to P1.6 billion.

The 6% increase in same store sales boosted systemwide sales to rise 15% to P6 billion for the nine-month period, as SPAVI continued its store expansion in the country. By the end of September 2017, the company had a total of 200 stores in the Philippines, positioning itself to breach the earlier target of 204 stores this year to 207.

Despite this, the company’s margins for recurring net income dropped 10.4%, which it attributed to interest expenses incurred since the middle of 2016.

“We encountered a more competitive environment in the third quarter, which is also typically the second half’s leaner period,” SPAVI President and Chief Executive Officer Vicente Gregorio was quoted as saying in a statement.

SPAVI noted it saw a 36% increase in operating income for nonrecurring items, as well as a 26% rise in earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation, and amortization for nonrecurring items, due to synergies achieved after being acquired by the Century Pacific Group in 2016.

The firm was further able to adjust to higher costs of raw materials through price increases and operating efficiencies.

SPAVI is looking forward to a better performance in the fourth quarter of 2017, which it said is historically a strong quarter due to the Christmas season.

“We are confident, however, that with the various product and marketing initiative implemented, we will see another round of good sales growth as we enter the Christmas season — historically the strongest part of the year,” Mr. Gregorio said.

Mr. Gregorio added that the company continues to monitor its expenses closely “as we start to feel the impact of higher raw material price and a weaker peso on our gross margin.”

“Nevertheless, we remain on track toward hitting our full year targets and now look forward to a good start for 2018,” the executive said.

While operating in the Philippines, SPAVI likewise has perpetual rights to the Shakey’s brand for the Middle East, parts of Asia, China, Australia and Oceania.

Outside the country, the company was able to strike a deal in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates for the development of 10 Shakey’s store outlets each in the next seven and five years, respectively.



Shakey’s to open 20 new stores this year

SHAKEY’S PIZZA Asia Ventures, Inc. (SPAVI) disclosed on Thursday plans to open 20 stores in 2018, banking on the positive sentiment of consumers and urbanization of areas outside Metro Manila.

The listed full-service restaurant said in a statement on Thursday this expansion program will brings its total store network in the country to 228 by the end of 2018.

“We will continue to take advantage of the positive consumer sentiment in the Philippines and hope to open even more stores, including those outside the typical first tier cities,” SPAVI President and Chief Executive Officer Vicente L. Gregorio was quoted as saying in a statement.

SPAVI managed to open 24 stores last year, exceeding its initial target of 20 for 2017. The company entered Iligan, Puerto Princesa, Antique, Gapan, and Palo, Leyte, among others, in line with growing urbanization in these areas.

“It has been a banner year for Shakey’s — our maiden year as a public listed company — as this is the fastest we’ve grown in terms of store network. We have a strong belief in our brand and our strategy, and are keeping pace with the accelerating growth of our economy,” Mr. Gregorio said.

Aside from opening more stores, SPAVI has also committed to launch redesigned interiors for its newer branches, as well as introducing new products.

Overseas, SPAVI also holds the perpetual rights for the Shakey’s brand in the Middle East, Asia ex-Japan and Malaysia, China, Australia, and Oceania. In 2017, the company signed a deal to put up at least 10 stores in Kuwait, as well as 10 stores in the United Arab Emirates in the next five years.

By 2022, the company is aiming to have a network of 500 stores in the Philippines and abroad.

SPAVI grew its attributable profit by 18% in the first nine months of 2017 to P503 million, from the P423 million it generated in the same period a year ago. This comes on the back of a 17% increase in revenues to P4.99 billion. The company also noted same-store sales grew by 6% during the period, allowing it to post a 15% jump in systemwide sales.



Shakey’s posts P762M net income in 2017, up 14%

Shakey's Pizza Asia Ventures Inc., the franchise holder of Shakey's Pizza restaurants in the Philippines, reported a net income of P762 million in 2017, up 14 percent from P669 million in 2016.

The net income was primarily driven by the sustained increase in revenues, successful store network expansion, and maintained profitability despite higher input costs, Shakey's said in a regulatory filing submitted the company's head of Investor Relations Giovanna Vera on Tuesday.

The company posted a revenue of P7 billion, 17 percent higher year-on-year.

System-wide sales breached the P8 billion mark, surging 14 percent to P8.3 billion on the back of same-store sales growth of 5 percent.

Shakey’s ended the year with 24 new stores opened, ahead of its earlier target of 20. This brought its total Philippine store network to 208 as of end 2017.

“Our strong topline performance, underpinned by healthy same-store sales growth and record new store openings last year, demonstrates the strength of the Shakey’s brand even in a highly competitive environment,” Shakey's president and CEO Vicente Gregorio said.

“Despite higher raw material prices and the current inflationary environment, synergies realized post-acquisition of the Century Pacific Group, inventory strategies, and various operating efficiencies have supported our above average margins and allowed us to invest in capability-enhancing initiatives,” Gregorio added.

For 2018, the company earlier announced its plan to open another 20 new stores in the country, to bring its nationwide store count to 228 by end-2018.



Shakey's says higher costs tempered Q1 income growth

MANILA - The operator of Shakey's restaurants in the Philippines said Friday net income grew by 6 percent in the first 3 months of 2018, as higher costs tempered sales growth.

Shakey's Pizza Asia Ventures Inc said it posted net income of P184 million in the first quarter, from P173 million during the same period last year.

Systemwide sales during the period rose 10 percent, Shakey's said, adding it was "pleased" with the growth, which occurred during a typically weak season.

"We continue to implement efficiency measures to cushion the impact of higher costs and inflationary pressures," said company president Vicente Gregorio.

"Moreover, with the expected pick-up in sales moving forward, we will likewise see an uptick in our margins as we maximize operating leverage and spread out fixed costs," he said.

Shakey's said it planned to open 16 more stores this year, bringing its store count to 228 by the end of 2018.

The country's largest fastfood operator, Jollibee, and casual restaurant operator Max's Group also earlier reported being affected by higher consumer prices in the first quarter.

Inflation reached a 5-year peak in April and on Thursday, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas raised the benchmark borrowing rate for the first time since September 2014.
